A 47-year-old local man was stopped for speeding and tailgating late Saturday afternoon, Aug. 16, near North Main and Union streets.


The arrested officer said the northbound male driver was confused and reeked of alcohol. The driver said he had nothing to drink.

Field sobriety and preliminary breath tests seemed to give a different answer and the man was arrested. Records show he had been convicted of drunk driving five times in the past.
